An International Security Assistance Force air asset killed an insurgent in support of a joint operation in Shah Wali Kot District, Kandahar province, Thursday.
Air assets tracked two insurgents armed with rocket-propelled grenade launchers and automatic weapons moving in the area on a motorcycle. They fired one Hellfire missile, killing one and injuring the other.
The injured insurgent was evacuated by an accomplice on a motorcycle before coalition forces could move to his location.
Initial reports indicate no civilians were injured in this operation.
